    The gentleman in the lower photo is the most amazing breath of fresh air on a cold and rainy fall day. Why can’t more men wear colour?

    Pretty in pink…though vaguely scandalous.

    Not a fan of pink, but the young lady makes it look darling and the gentlemen makes it look very modern and grown-up!

    love a man comfortable enough in his skin to pull that look off!

    Oh, there are some things I miss about Britain, and this kind of gent is one of them – fab!

    Pink is normally the only color I never wear but, the young woman in the first photo might just change that. It’s amazing how a previously unappealing color becomes very appealing when you see it paired with other unexpected colors. *Sigh* My inability to see this before is why I’ll always be a fashion observer, and not a fashion insider.

    These men are all over London – they make my day bright when it often isn’t.

    I think a little pink can serve almost ANY outfit well – especially on a gray day. Love these photos!

    He’s such a proper old Brit. Love those shades together, although if he mixed like this when he was younger I’d imagine the colours lent his look a bit of a Hooray Henry style (which wouldn’t have been so good).

    And the girl? I wish I’d had her style when I was her age, whatever that may be…

    The pink and purple guy is Robin Wight the senior partner in one of London’s foremost adverising agencies. Believe me he can afford to be his own man and always is.

    it’s funny how often these grey h&m pants have already occured on streetfashion-blogs. i think it’s now the 5th time i have seen them!

    Ok, fess up: the gentleman was wearing a beige coat and brown pants and you colored the photo, right?
    Seriously, though, this captures the whimsical nature of the Brits and why I love them.

    More power to the young woman, too. I wish I had her sense of style at her age.

    I’m not a pantone specialist but I bet those 2 shades are pretty close! What are the chances? And how different (yet great) they both look.

    I find her look to be a nice suggestion of what to wear as business casual in a professional office – modest, chic, relaxed but serious too

    The gentleman at bottom is amazing! Great pic. Now I love to wear pink just as much as the next chap, but combining it with purple trousers is a bit over-the-top.

    Given the striking colour of his clothing and the attention it would attract, I’m not sure I would feel comfortable being seen having lunch with this gentleman. Perhaps if he were paying for lunch at, say, Pasha on Gloucester Road, I would feel all right.

    Not enough men wear pink, IMO. I recently bought another pink polo shirt. You should see the weird looks I get. However, I have found, to my benefit, that women love a man in pink.

    Maybe it was better in person, but that gentleman’s sartorial choice did not translate for me.

    i love both characters so much. pink is a great color but i think the new way to wear it is in an offbeat way, as they have done. these pictures made me smile, thank you :)

    This is Robin Wight, chairman of ad agency WCRS. Robin is famous throughout the industry for his ‘unique’ take on colour and gratuitous use of the bow tie. I once pitched against him when he was wearing a burgundy mohair suit and a green bow tie that looked like an angry cavolo nero attacking his neck. A true Sartorialist nonetheless.

    I apriciate the colour but the pink on purple is to much for me. the concept is nice but it feels a like to much. the green frames on the classes are a nice touch though

    I love him. He looks like a flower growing on that hedge. How can a gent be manly and sweet at the same time? I’d give him a kiss on the cheek!

    as a young girl, i would have killed to paint my bedroom in those colors. that man is bold. and he has a purple, slightly irridescent suit coat on to match, right? surely, that is a woman’s jacket. where does he find these pieces??

    pink and grey are always so sharp together. that bold pink is really fun, but may not suit everyone. there is a pink out there for everyone. mine is slighly more melon.

    On the fellow, only an Englishman with a good sense of humor could pull off this look. I think he looks cool.

    Wow! I must say he’s a sight for sore eyes.. Even though I don’t like men wearing this much pink, I have to say that’s something fresh and pretty in the way he pulls it off.. I mean I’ve seen salmon pink or coral on men a lot, but not this type of bright girly pink, and he makes it seem more unisex than girly!
    And the taffeta like metallic violet-pink pants-omg! They are amazing! He’s actually wearing a purple jacket as well.. Pink coat, purple suit, brown shoes, green glasses I’m in awe..

    As for the cute girl.. I love her style! I think pink on girls always look fresh and cute. I love her high waisted grey pantacour teamed up with heels and a tucked in blouse, and her handbag makes her outfit look more chic – Thank you for such an eye opening post!

    When I go bald, remind me to wear a lot of purple. I won’t be mistaken for a lesbian by then, and can revel in mixing all shades from the left side of the color spectrum. Great outfit!
